PreSchool-K - From A to Z, Paratore presents a number of ways in which children help every day, using their hands to feed fish, make music, plant gardens, recycle bottles and cans, etc. Unfortunately, the author struggles with restrictions imposed by the alphabet format, and some of the actions, such as "kindle kindness," "nestle," and "x and o," are a stretch. The artwork is bright and cheerful, reflecting the text's optimism. However, there is a noticeable flaw in the illustration for E: a young girl holding an earthworm has six fingers. Even without this mistake, the pictures seem a bit inconsistent: while the children are drawn in a fairly realistic style, some of the animals are very cartoonish. The youngsters appear stiff and unnatural, and their hands, a natural focus of the book, are puffy and poorly drawn. - Suzanne Myers Harold, Multnomah County Library System, Portland, OR
